    A big year for Irish Whiskey?

    Lots of exciting news in 2013 for fans of Irish Whiskey in these related articles on the Whiskey Advocate blog and Whiskyconnosr blog. I'm already a fan of The irishman line (although curious about a possible renaming) and would love to try some of the Teeling offerings described in these articles.

    The big question is will we see any of it on this side of the pond? Unfortunately I expect we won't, at least not anytime soon. But if someone happens to see them available in the States I would love to know about it!

    Think I'll get a bottle of Powers or Clontarf for the upcoming Irish celebration.

    I just brought home my annual bottle of Irish. Tulimor Dew this year. I'll toast the green saint, and use it to break my bourbon habit once in a while.

    Re: A big year for Irish Whiskey?

    Greenore single grain small batch....almost an Irish bourbon....rather it is similar to a "straight corn whiskey".
    Very unusual for an Irish whiskey.

    100% corn grain - first fill bourbon barrel aged - column still production.
    http://www.greenorewhiskey.com/whiskey.aspx

    8 years old but only 40% abv.

    Ralfiy will be reviewing it next.

    I have not had this but online reviews are favorable.

    Binny's has it for 49.99......not too bad. "Gold Medal winner".

    I've had a bottle for about a month. Kinda like bourbon but only kinda. Sorta like corn whiskey but only sorta. Dangerously drinkable. It'll be this year's St. Pat's pour for sure.

    Not for everybody... but highly recommended.

    Go for The Irishman this year, folks. At $25 it's a steal! Their single malt at $40 is also a winner but I'm happy with the original.

    I had my first taste of Redbreast 12 right after the new year started. Never like an Irish whiskey before I tried it. It's hard for me to believe that there might be a better one out there. The Redbreast is just an outstanding pour.

    Try the Redbreast 12 cask strength, it'll change your religion! That being said though, it still ain't bourbon.

    I would have to totally agree here,if the RB12 tripped your trigger the RBCS is a must.I don't know if I've ever had a more crisp and vibrant pour from any other Irish in the past,the addition of proof really brings it to a whole other level!Total Fruit Bomb!
